Marmot Dark Mountains follows the usual two-day mountain marathon format but condenses it into one winters night. Elite, A, B, C and Score categories set off in pairs on a staggered start, the longer courses followed by the shorter ones, all hoping to converge back at the event centre as dawn breaks. Live GPS tracking enables the organisers, alongside friends, family, and any other keen followers, to track the progress of the competitors through the night. Marmot Dark Mountains has something for everyone; the Elite course to challenge the most seasoned of competitor through to the C and short score courses which would be suitable for a first timer (with suitable navigational experience).
TdeH which has fast become a classic winter mountain run, traditionally run on the shortest Saturday in December. The route starts at Askham and runs around Helvellyn, mainly on mountain trails and bridleways, but climbing to a height of nearly 600m, and a distance of around 38 miles.
A winter run of this type is tough and requires good navigational skills, experience and self reliance. The event is 'low key' with minimal support and all participants will need to be suitably experienced and equipped. Individual support teams, pacing or 'crew' are not allowed
The SILVA GL3D is an adventurous three-day mountain marathon with a unique, relaxed and friendly atmosphere that attracts both runners and long-distance walkers. Over the years the event has built up a dedicated following of participants who enjoy the challenge of three long, consecutive days in the hills.
Participants can choose from either the Expert, Wainwright, or Caf course. Participants simply enter the event, and then choose whichever course they prefer on the day e.g. Wainwright for all three days, Wainwright then Caf on day 2, or any mix-and-match combination. All participants still share the same overnight camp. The Caf Course is specifically aimed at experienced walkers and slower runners.
Rather than complex navigation, the emphasis is on long mountain journeys, spectacular scenery and enjoying an amazing mountain experience. Participants should expect mostly mountain trails and footpaths, along ridges and through valleys, rather than contouring and bogs. We start and finish in the same location just three days apart! So that participants can get maximum enjoyment, we transport their overnight equipment between each camp.
